New Babies – New Parents

Celebrate the birth of your baby with a naming ceremony: Brit Milah for a boy or Simhat Bat for a girl.Danielle Emersen Finston

A Brit Milah ceremony can be done at your home. Depending on availability, you may also rent space at BJ for this ceremony. Please call the BJ office for more information and mohel recommendations.

At BJ, a Brit Bat takes place during Shabbat morning services. The new parents will bring the baby up to the bima for an aliyah, and they will receive a special blessing from the rabbi and a certificate. Having your Brit Bat during Shabbat services allows your new baby to be welcomed into the BJ community in a holy and public setting. It is a beautiful moment for your entire family.

Before these ceremonies, the BJ rabbis would love to meet with the soon-to-be and new parents! Please contact our office to schedule a meeting.

Every new BJ baby will also be sent a “BJ’s Newest Member” onesie, so remember to confirm your mailing address when you call to let us know about your simha.
